Where's my descriptions and titles?

From: Rich Thomas <thomasr(at)>

I've included my confg file and a sample of results.  Why do I get Null
titles and no descriptions? I'll also include what I'm using as a search
tool.  It's basically swish.cgi modified for our site with no secondary
sorts or date routine.

How do I force swish-e not to follow all links when using the http method?
Is this even possible?
